Neke su bilješke o produkciji dostupne za navodnu nadolazeću verziju programa uživo Akira, koji bi trebao biti dobar "ole heve-ho" pokušaj Hollywooda. Bilješke dolaze ljubaznošću izdanja časopisa od 4. travnja 2019 Tjedni proizvodnje, Naime, izdajte 1138.
Obuhvaćene su brojne teme, ali jedna od njih uključuje i sinopsis proizvodnje Akira, which they list as being in “active development”, and listing people like Leonardo DiCaprio and Katsuhiro Otomo as the producers. Most notably is the synopsis of the film, which will purportedly be made in collaboration with Legendary Entertainment and Piki Films, Taika Waititi’s production outfit.
ComicBook.com copied the text from the production photo and laid it out for easy reading, where it states…
“Kada vojska otkrije telekinezu mladića, on se pretvara u super oružje i njegov brat mora se utrkivati da bi ga spasio prije nego što ga Manhattan uništi. Kaneda je vlasnik bara u Neo-Manhattanu koji je zapanjen kada je njegov brat Tetsuo otet od strane vladinih agenata na čelu s pukovnikom. U očajničkom pokušaju da vrati brata, Kaneda pristaje pridružiti se Ky Reedu i njezinom pokretu u podzemlju koji namjeravaju otkriti svijetu ono što se doista dogodilo New Yorku prije 30-a kada je uništen.
“Kaneda believes their theories to be ludicrous, but after facing his brother again is shocked when he displays telekinetic powers. Ky believes Tetsuo is headed to release a young boy. Akira, who has taken control of Tetsuo’s mind, Kaneda clashes with the Colonel’s troops on his way to stop Tetsuo from releasing Akira, but arrives too late. Akira soon emerges from his prison courtesy of Tetsuo as Kaneda races to save his brother before Akira once again destroys Manhattan island as he did thirty years ago.”
Right off the bat most people will note that this sounds like a hot mess. Kaneda isn’t described as the leader of a ragtag biker gang, but is instead a bartender, and Akira is described as some sort of poltergeist from beyond the grave with telekinetic mind-control powers using a hapless Tetsuo to do his bidding.
Najvažnije je da je poslijeratni Neo-Tokio zamijenjen poslijeratnim Manhattanom u New Yorku. U starim intervjuima Waititi je također naveo da želi da vodi do Azije.
Kao što sam spomenuo, zvuči kao neuredan omlet napravljen na tavi bez ruba na plamenoj peći bez kontrole temperature.
Međutim, postoji upozorenje.
Dok je Production Weekly legitiman izvor vijesti za produkcije holivudskih filmova, Otaquest.com Vjeruje da bi proizvodne bilješke mogle biti ujednačeno spojene zastarjele informacije od nekoga bliskog projektu.
They point to a series of older production notes from 17 years ago back in 2002, as well as some of the information that surfaced from the attempts to get the live-action version of the film off the ground in 2008. They note that the latest synopsis is basically a retread of the old synopsis from years ago, and that there’s still no confirmation that Taika Waititi is still officially signed on to direct, nor is there any confirmation that Warner Bros., has properly greenlit production to move forward.
Sada je sve to istina.
Informacije su oskudne i potvrda je tanka.
However, Production Weekly’s missive does contain the caveat that it’s still in “active development” and not “active production”. So it doesn’t discount anything mentioned in the OtaQuest article, in the same way that the OtaQuest article doesn’t actually debunk what’s mentioned in the Production Weekly piece. It’s more like a warning: this is subject to change and take it with a healthy dose of salt. They explain….
“While it is very possible that Taika Waititi will direct the film, and is honestly something we’d hope for, it’s too early to be voicing concern over an unconfirmed synopsis that eerily screams out various scrapped parts of the project since it initially entered development in 2002.”
Pa gdje to ostavlja Akira live-action film? Well, pretty much with what little information we have now. For as far as we know the movie is still aligned with following a story of Tetsuo and Kaneda as brothers living in Manhattan, and the film will still follow the telekinetic mishaps that spawn from Tetsuo’s capture by the military.
Tehnički, ako doista želite vidjeti dobar live-action film na temelju Akira, samo gledaj kronika.
